This guy is hilarious. Drinks historian Jared Brown’s masterclass on Cognac at Fine Wine Fare, see this interview with Jared Brown, recorded after a Cognac master class seminar he gave.

“Every time you put a sip of cognac into someone’s month something changes.”

“Fascinated about the masterclass he just gave. Remarkably complex spirit, beauty of cognac is that it has no rough edges.

And what about redefining the category of cognac with cocktails?

It’s cognac’s rediscovering of its own heritage. A century ago it was very common to drink cocktails with cognac, punch for example, which would then be a few centuries ago.”

“Use fresh juice, when you mix with cognac – it’s makes such a difference! Champagne and Cognac, sirup, and some fresh lemon for example. And you’ve got a great drink… good Champagne and you’ve got an amazing drink.

A lot of people say: Uh.. mix with champagne? Drive a Ferrari in the city traffic? But Champagne and Cognac is made in heaven.”
